It’s Happy Hour Again!

So now I’ve got that House Martins song ingrained on your brain,for those who remember them that is!Click on the link for a trip down memory lane or if you’re intrigued.Don’t forget to check out their awesome moves!!Gotta love the Eighties!

I’ll now move on to this weeks challenge at Craft Your Passion.Let’s Tie One On is the theme,so use ribbon,lacing or anything you can tie on.We also have a fabulous sponsor,Shelly’s Images.So pop along to see how to play along and take a look at the wonderful work from the DT and GD’s.

I’ve used Shelly’s Images Happy Hour Lime for my card.This was so much fun to colour and I decided to go with bright,cheery colours.Coloured with Promarkers and Glossy Accents have been applied to the glass.I’ve done my usual and forgotten to take a close up (duh!).I threaded a organza rainbow ribbon through the edge of the die cut piece.I dug out some Prima Flowers and a brad that I’ve had a fair while in my stash to finish.
